Lone Star Blues
By George Strait
CD: Here For A Good Time - 2011
Tabbed By Larry Mofle

At a truck stop in San Angelo
I saw a billboard 'bout this rodeo
This weekend out in El Paso
So I signed up to ride

I drew a bull called Original Sin
Heard he'd killed a couple of men
Figured this was somethin' I could win
'Cause the devil's on my side

I was havin' myself one hell of a ride
But I ended up disqualified
That ole bull just up and died
Before they blew the whistle

With them North Texas blues
Thought I'd paid all my dues
Then them South Texas blues
Told me son you ain't through
Had the East Texas blues
An' the West Texas too
I've done all I know to do
Tryin' to lose, tryin' to lose these old Lone Star Blues

I got laid off at Brown and Root
Then on my way back to Cut 'N Shoot
I lost my wristwatch and my boots 
Shootin' dice with a dude from Houston
Well, there ain't no jobs here workin' cattle
So I got on part-time hauling gravel
With some outfit from Seattle
Down here building custom homes


Instrumental break

Well, I gassed up my truck an' I packed my clothes
Turned in my key and I hit the road
I said Cowtown's where I'll go
You never know, I might get lucky
Well I got a friend there turnin' knobs
At a place called Billy Bob's
Said he thought he could get me a job there
Working as a bouncer
First night on the job was just insane
Some old boy got all deranged
Hit me in the head with a Harley chain
To this day my ears still ring


I've done all I know to do, tryin' to lose,
Tryin' to lose these lone star blues
